18 May 2018

FICCI or­ga­nized the 'Avi­a­tion In­di­geni­sa­tion Expo 2018' in as­so­ci­a­tion with the In­dian Navy and the Aero­nau­ti­cal So­ci­ety of In­dia, Goa. On the oc­ca­sion, Vice Ad­mi­ral Girish Luthra, PVSM, AVSM, VSM, ADC, Flag Of­fi­cer Com­mand­ing-in-Chief, Western Naval Com­mand, said that the main­te­nance and re­pair of any air­craft us­ing lat­est and hi-end tech­nol­ogy is the life­line of Naval avi­a­tion fleet, and in­di­g­e­niza­tion ef­forts to en­sure that the right spare is avail­able at the right time must be­gin much ear­lier in the life cy­cle of a plat­form af­ter its in­duc­tion.

This ef­fort will not only re­duce the air­craft down­time as ma­jor­ity of com­po­nents are still im­port de­pen­dent but will also re­sult in lower cost of re­pair and main­te­nance. He added that while the Naval air­craft yards and sta­tion level work­shops have been meet­ing the chal­lenges, there is a need to en­cour­age OEMs (Orig­i­nal Equip­ment Man­u­fac­tur­ers) to set up fa­cil­i­ties and carry out re­pair up to mod­ule level. MRO: Main­te­nance, re­pair, op­er­a­tions.
